Moving: Is It Worth The Hassle Or Will A Moving Company Do A Better Job?
Moving yourself vs. hiring Northshore Moving Company to help you move? It can be a tough decision. However, there are advantages and disadvantages to both options.
Advantages of moving yourself: are that you can pack at your own pace, you’ll be familiar with the layout of your new place, and you won’t have to clean out a rental truck.
There are also disadvantages: you could need back surgery from all that lifting! And if landlords don’t allow movers on site for loading/unloading there’s an increased chance for damage during transport.
Advantages of hiring a company to help you move are that they will pack for you, load and unload the truck so there’s no damage involved in transport, and help with furniture assembly. They offer many various services for all your needs and can offer reduced rates for seniors, veterans and the disabled. They are professionals who know what they’re doing, especially if you need to move an office.
The disadvantages are that you don’t have any control over how your things will be packed or handled when being loaded and unloaded from a truck. They can also charge extra if anything is marked fragile on their inventory list. You’ll need up-front money to pay for the service plus extra costs added on top of what’s included (packing supplies may be needed as well). There is also an increased risk of items being damaged during transit.
If money isn’t a concern, then there really aren’t any disadvantages of hiring movers! It takes some time for everything to get organized but if you’re tired from packing yourself or have back pain already setting in before the actual move day, this could be your best option.
In conclusion, moving yourself could save some cash but it takes time/effort not found when working with a company who does all the heavy lifting. Northshore Moving Company will take all your worries from you, for a reasonable price!
